Re: Crab distributor 6v to 12v

There are no components inside the distributor that are voltage-sensitive. And, anything that MIGHT be current-sensitive is not threatened because OHM's Law would reduce the effects of any current...

Re: 1932 "survivoration"

I don't believe it has anything to do with engine (trans)/serial numbers. I do believe that a couple of body styles were numbered on firewall as they were produced. Surely David will set me...

Re: 40`Ford Brakes Update from 7/10 post

Actually, I believe the ratio DOES affect the stroke. Imagine these two scenarios, exaggerated for clarity!

Pedal #1 is 12" long between pivot point and foot pad. It has a pushrod hole 6" from...

Re: Swan type shifter w/ 4" drop

Truth be known, I'd bet that that is not a TRUE '32 shifter, although it's somewhat representative. I think that's probably a T5-type transmission by looking at how far back the shifter comes...

Re: 1932 "survivoration"

Re: Swan type shifter w/ 4" drop

Here's a '32 shifter. What did you mean by a 4"-drop?

Re: Fenton intake value?

SEE....go spend the money you just saved on that ugly manifold on a functional camera (lens). DD

Re: Fenton intake value?

Will....I know that you have 'use or lose" money, but I would pass on that thing and save your bucks for somethin' you really want or need. Just my opinion! None of my business, really. DD

Re: Fenton intake value?

Will....I'm thinking you still have an original-type early flathead in your car, and NOT the later 8BA-type engine. That manifold is for the later 8BA-type ('49-'53) engine. Although it will...

Re: '40 rear brake question: How snug should the drums be on the shoes?

Alan.....Read carefully! By "immediate efficiency", I alluded to the LIKELY attempt to improve front to rear brake bias by differing the size of the front/rear wheel cylinders. Ford obviously felt...

Re: '40 rear brake question: How snug should the drums be on the shoes?

Yup, and Henry and the boys (mostly the boys) IMPROVED the immediate efficiency by going hydraulic the next year, didn't they! Longevity-wise...the cables never leak or get nasty and rusty inside...

Re: '40 rear brake question: How snug should the drums be on the shoes?

The most-efficient front to rear brake bias is accomplished through pressure regulation. That's the main reason for the smaller diameter of the rear wheel cylinders. You certainly don't want rear...

Re: '40 rear brake question: How snug should the drums be on the shoes?

You say you're just grabbing that rear drum and turning. Is it difficult to turn, or just dragging? I've always set-up shoe brakes with SOME drag, yet NO real difficulty in turning. ALMOST sounds...

Re: 40 Ford Brakes

Possibly, but probably not anywhere near as much as you might think (if much at all), especially if ALL tires are properly inflated. If properly inflated, the weight of the car is only going to...

I know I've played with your words above, but there are a lot of variables to be considered....most-importantly, probably tire size. BUT.....tires being the same on both cars, if you can 'lock 'em...

Re: paint on oil pan?

They both came-about in the same relative time frame. As far as 'looks-wise'......I'm sorry, but the Ardun just makes the Mopar Hemis look like an afterthought, and I love the look of a Hemi! But...
